It’s the first Movie Fixers “mini” episode (we use that term loosely) and they’re talking about sequels, prequels, and reboots. Listen to Matt and Tony talk about their almost-encyclopedic knowledge of the history of these movies, their favorites, and ones that don’t yet exist but that they’d like to see made.
The third installment of the X-Men movie franchise had a lot of problems and the Movie Fixers are taking them on. Skip to 33:30 if you want to get right to the fixin’ and miss a very entertaining synopsis of this gem.
Short Circuit is a movie that didn’t need a lot of “fixin”, but Matt and Tony talk about the brown faced elephant in the room as well as the many ways they’d update the movie for modern audiences or even a reboot.
The Movie Fixers are BACK with the 2018 Netflix original The Cloverfield Paradox. Ultimately enjoyable, this movie only needed a “patch job” (Tony’s words). If you’ve been on the fence about watching this sequel, maybe this episode will help you decide.
Next episode: Short Circuit
Comment below with your thoughts on The Cloverfield Paradox, the upcoming Short Circuit episode, or a suggestion for a future Movie Fix.
Matt and Tony are joined by guest Fixer Jess Adducci as they work harder than ever before to fix the 2004 movie Timeline. Starring Paul Walker and Gerard Butler (among others), this adaptation of one of Matt and Tony’s favorite books proved to be their hardest fix yet.
Movie Fixers takes a stab at fixing the 2017 comedy Snatched. Starring Amy Schumer and the amazing Goldie Hawn, this movie had all the potential for laughs but just fell short. See if the Movie Fixers can redeem this would be fun-filled film.
